TripAdvisor Reviews Amans Paradise Hotels Moshi
Travel Blogs from Moshi
We all were exhausted, dirty(no showers for 7 days), and hungry after we finished climbing down. We were looking forward to taking hot water showers (especially me since I seemed to be perpetually cold), different food than what we'd been eating for days, sleeping on a comfy mattress, and possibly massages from the hotel. As we drove from the gate to Moshi, we saw lots of coffee plantations and banana trees and villages. But most importantly we were sitting on cushioned seats in a van. ...
... Porters. These guys were incredible. They would leave after us and get to the next camp before us while carrying about 30lbs on their heads/backs/hands. It was amazing to see as these guys would pass us on the trail carrying all this weight. Some were in sneakers, didn't have water with them and yet they were able to do this.

Unfortunately, the cheese had been rancid, which she only discovered after she ate Danica’s cheese from her burger by itself. The result - Tanya and Danica, one from food and one from alcohol, spent the night sharing the bathroom. It was a less than happy end to a great weekend, but we both survived the 7 hour ...
... as the van got fuller it ended up sitting on Tanya’s feet – nice! As we hopped off the dalla dalla, the first guy who walked up to us said, "Moshi" and off we followed him to the next bus that would take us to our destination.
Onward to Moshi and the bus breaks down [of course!], but now it’s just a part of our everyday life that things don’t run smooth, so we don’t mind at all. We pile out of the bus and into smaller cars to get to ...
